Why SPRA exists

Sneyd Park view

Sneyd Park is part of the Stoke Bishop district of Bristol, much of it falling within the Sneyd Park Conservation Area (SPCA).

The association’s area of interest is bounded by the following highways: Rockleaze, Downleaze, Stoke Hill, Old Sneed Avenue (to the junction with Roman Way and Avon Way) and Glenavon Park, to the edge of the Portway.

The links page offers access to Bristol City Council pages on conservation areas and specifically to an SPCA document with a defining map.

Under its constitution, the association’s aims and objectives are:

To maintain the existing character of the area by aiming to represent the views of the residents in general matters of planning and environmental issues and to promote community issues of benefit to the residents of Sneyd Park.

Each year at the AGM in May a small committee is elected and this normally meets about six times a year or more frequently if necessary.

We look for new ideas and input from members and welcome constructive criticism. If you feel you would like to join the committee or may be able to help the association in some way, please contact the chairman.
